Say Masha Allah when you hear good news, not bad news.
“Masha Allah” can be uttered to congratulate someone. It is a reminder that although the person is being congratulated, it was Allah that ultimately willed it. In some cultures, people may utter Masha Allah in the belief that it may help protect them from jealousy, the ‘evil eye’ or a jinn.
